Valentine Vignettes

I arise from dreams of thee
In the first sweet sleep of night,
When the winds are breathing low,
And the stars are shining bright.
I arise from dreams of thee,
And a spirit in my feet
Hath led me -- who knows how?
To thy chamber window, Sweet!

The wandering airs they faint
On the dark, the silent stream--
And the Champak's odours
Like sweet thoughts in a dream;
The nightingale's complaint,
It dies upon her heart,
As I must on thine,
O belov├Ęd as thou art!

O lift me from the grass!
I die! I faint! I fail!
Let thy love in kisses rain
On my lips and eyelids pale.
My cheek is cold and white, alas!
My heart beats loud and fast:
O press it to thine own again,
Where it will break at last!

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Mia smiled. "I have time. Maybe we could get some Chinese too?"

"Funny you should mention Chinese. There's some waiting at our destination." Conner smiles.

He extends a hand.

"Come with me? Oh, and keep the cute pajamas." he says.

"Awesome," Mia said, taking his hand.

"Let's get going."

Conner takes Mia into his arms and flies her to the Midwest, landing in the Kent Family Barn.

He puts her down in front of the food, then dashes off to put on sweatpants and a t-shirt.

"Happy Valentine's Day, Mia Dearden." Conner days.

Mia smiled at him. "Happy Valentine's Day, Conner Kent."

After they've eaten and relaxed, Conner seems a bit anxious.

"Mia...what do you think is going on between us?" he asks.

"First.../is there/ something going on between us?" he asks.

There was a long pause.

"I'd like there to be, Conner." She said. "I really would."

She inhaled. "But first...I really need to ask you something.

I'm not just some rebound thing from Cassie for you, am I?"

For a moment, Conner doesn't understand the question and then he does. Then he feels like a complete idiot for not considering that Mia might have felt that way.

"Mia...no. You are not a rebound girl. I swear. I didn't come back intending to get closer to you, but...it happened. I did. Now, I can't imagine /not/ being close to you." Conner says, fidgeting a bit and smoothing back his hair.

"Mia, when I was gone a few months ago, I went to the future. I saw a future where the Titans, the Justice League all of us were gone. Cassie...she was one of Darkseid's Furies and I had to fight her.

She'd become someone I didn't even know, Mia. Coupled with how distant we'd become before I left, I couldn't...I just didn't know how to deal with her anymore. I know that's not really fair, but I was prepared to just be alone for the rest of my life." he says.

"Then you came along and I thought we were just flirting for fun, but then I wanted to see you all the time. I liked having Chinese food and hanging out. I like how you make me trip over my words." he says.

There was a long silence.

"I really do like you Conner," she said. "I like hanging out with you, and there's always no place else I'd rather be when we do hang out and do stuff together. Whether it's getting Chinese food or kicking Metallo's ass.

But I've also never really felt this way about a guy before, I guess. My last 'relationship' if you can even call it that, was with a guy that used me both for sex and as his own personal investment plan. I'm not saying you're the same way, and god, I know you're not, but... the whole experience has just jaded me a little, I guess.

Which was why I asked if I was just a rebound from Cassie. I'm glad I'm not, and I hope you understand why I asked. I'm really not used to a guy liking me for well, me, and not for sex."

"It's not about sex. I respect you too much to only want that from you." Conner says.

"You should get used to someone wanting you for more than that, because it's happened. It's happening now." he says.

Mia smiled brightly.

"You have no idea how happy that makes me, Conner," she said.

She leaned over and kissed him.

Conner returns Mia's kiss, feeling happier than he's been in a very long time. When he returned home, he didn't want to see anyone, or talk to anyone about what had happened in the future. It was a major contributor in how things ended with Cassie.

Now, though, Conner felt confident enough to believe that maybe tomorrow would be well.
